"[1] And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
[2] And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
[3] Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[4] Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
[5] Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
[6] Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
[7] Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
[8] Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
[9] Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
[10] Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[11] Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
[12] Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
[13] Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
[14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
[15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
[16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:1-16

a Christological understanding of Scripture

It is 1:17 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is cold gray snowy afternoon. It has been predicted that the snow will turn to rain sometime today.

I have had a normal day. I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. Carol had been up since 3:45 AM. Right now my wife is sleeping because goes into work around 6:30 PM this evening. She told me today she only has 28 more shifts before she fully retires from the American work force.

This morning I did the usual things like eat food, write in my paper diary, and mess with our main computer. While Carol was gone to her physical therapy session I filmed a video for my Youtube channel. I main spent the morning writing in my diary and reading from a book titled, 'Canon, Covenant, and Christology-Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel' by Matthew Barrett.

I got out to read this afternoon a book titled, 'From People into Nations: A History of Eastern Europe' by John Connelly.

There is not much else to report this afternoon. I plan to read my books and drift.

Last night I read and listened to music.
